(MUNSTER) - A woman who deposited two $1,000 bills at a Munster, Indiana, bank later got a call from bank officials asking her to retrieve the money.

The crisp bills with the image of President Grover Cleveland weren't fakes. It turns out they're rare 1934 bills worth far more than their $1,000 face value.

American Savings Bank President Michael Mellon says they were just looking out for a customer when they returned the bills.

A rare coin dealer says the bills could be worth up to $4,500 each.

The woman was not identified for security reasons. She told Mellon the bills came from a relative a long time ago.
